Muntognas

Ordovas

Sometimes the simplest of things can produce the most effective solutions. ‘Muntognas’, meaning ‘Mountains’ in the Swiss language of Romansch, the native tongue of the artist Not Vital. The exhibition presents eight marble, ‘Dali stone’ sculptures made in 2013. Mined in the Yunnan province of China, the marble has been sliced open to reveal the hidden landscapes within, inextricably linking these striking sculptures to Vital’s birthplace of Sent, a tiny village in the Engadin valley of the Swiss Alps. The book presents these monochrome images in a tall format. The invitation was a folded card evoking the shape of mountains – simple yet effective.
